ECHO PARK — PETA never misses an opportunity to promote its animal rights efforts – not even when a car crashed into its Sunset Boulevard offices. An anti-SeaWorld mural by the street artist known as Cache now covers the large gap that was created when an SUV plowed through a wall of glass as the organization was holding a SeaWorld protest planning meeting.

No one was injured but the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals decided to take advantage of the boards that covered up the damage. The mural of an orca and a pair of the artist’s familiar chickens will remain in place until the glass is replaced.

“It’s only fitting that the boards covering the hole in the building have been turned into an anti-SeaWorld mural, courtesy of Los Angeles graffiti legend Cache,” said a PETA statement.
